ABC believes in following a proven process to make painting projects run smoothly.
Interior Painting Projects
When we paint the interior of your home, our first step will be to move any furniture and belongings away from the walls to ensure they remain paint-free throughout the project. Our specialists will then mask and tape your floors and other surfaces to keep the area as clean as possible. For due diligence, we will also put down a drop cloth to ensure paint doesn’t get anywhere it shouldn’t be.
After we have covered up your flooring and belongings, we will begin preparing the surfaces for painting. Surface preparation may include filling and caulking holes, sanding down rough spots and applying a primer coat. When we have finished painting the room, we will carefully clean up all of our equipment and put your furniture back so you can enjoy your freshly painted room or rooms.
Exterior Painting Projects
When applying paint to your home’s exterior, we start by covering up plants, walkways or any other outdoor decorations you may have to ensure that they don’t end up with paint droplets. Then, in most cases we will apply a primer to prepare your home for painting. While painting, we pay extra attention to areas around your doors, windows and trim to ensure no paints end up in unwanted spots. When we finish an outdoor painting project, just as with any project inside, our painters will clean up so you won’t have to deal with a mess and can focus on enjoying your fresh, new-looking home.
ABC has built a reputation in the community for providing thorough, reliable services delivered by experienced specialists. Our customers can have peace of mind knowing that our team members are drug tested and checked for criminal history prior to joining our team. At ABC, we treat your home as if it was our own, so you can always count on us to be courteous and respectful of you, your family and your property.
How do you create estimates for painting projects?
When you reach out to us for help with painting, we will ask you some questions to learn more about your project. For smaller jobs, such as painting a door or doing quick touch-ups, we can usually give you a free estimate over the phone. For larger projects, we usually recommend a brief meeting at your home to gain a better understanding of your wants and needs.
During that visit, you can expect our inspector to:
- Examine the area you would like to have painted
- Ask you questions about your desired colors, finishes and, if applicable, designs
- Determine your budget
- Answer any questions you may have
When creating an estimate, we look at the size of the area you would like to have painted, how many stories will need to be painted and how long it will take us to paint the area, which may require more time if you would like a special design or technique. We will also consider if there are any considerations that may make the project more involved, such patching drywall before painting can take place.
Once you have approved our estimate, we will put you on our schedule.
Will I need to clean up when you’re done?
One of ABC’s core values is treating your home as if it was our own, and that means our painting crews will clean up when your project is completed. We want to make your life easier, so we do everything we can to help you enjoy the final product. When you hire ABC for a painting project, you can rely on us to leave your home as clean as we found it. After we have finished painting your home, we will leave you with any extra paint so you can use it in the future for touch-ups.
Which brands of paint do you use?
We normally use contractor-grade paint. However, if there is a shade of paint from another brand that you would like for your home, we would be happy to discuss that with you. Whenever possible, we recommend using low- or zero-VOC paints for your projects because these paints produce less odor and are less toxic.
Can you complete painting projects while I’m not at home?
You can trust our painters to work while you’re away from your home. Once you give us instructions on how to gain access to the areas of your home that we will be painting, out painters can do their work while you’re gone so you can return to a freshly painted home.
